"in the state of wonderment"


« on: Feb 22, 2010 06:20 pm »

Spiritual awareness, is there more than one definition ?

Is this in reference to soul seeking, God seeking or Spirit seeking as in the psychic sense. I have heard it used both ways.

Spiritual as all encompassing, not specific to one religion. But isn't Spirit, one who is on the Other Side, one who has passed over ?

Or is Spirit another word for God, higher being ? Can Spirit be both ?

Namaste2All thank you for such a helpful response. This subject that Secret Squirrel contributed is something we all need to be aware of it is a very interesting and is an integral part of the spiritual process. i think that we often get caught up in what you refer to as 'circular logic'. It is a ferris wheel we have to jump off; otherwise the reasoning and logical aspects of personality take over and that becomes our reality. We keep asking questions without taking the steps to find the answers. This is what happened to Christ. People kept asking Jesus questions but the answers he gave did not fit in with their preconcieved ideas of what was reality. So the only way they knew how to deal with it is to annihilate his reality by crucifying him. However he suprised them by coming back to prove his reality was more real than theirs.

Until we enter the labatory of our own meditation we will remain in these circular projects. Somewhat like a person locked in a room for a life; When someone comes in and explains the outside world; That there is an expansive sky that goes on forever we get this kind of response: Forever? the individual asks  is that until you reach the roof?"

So in the same way spirit is not somewhere else it is all around us and inside us. It is a simple process of opening the door to it. Yet until we see this spirit reflected in others by visiting saints and going into the inner laboratory of our own consciousness our questions remain confined to the box we are living in. This applies to me as well as anyone here at the forum. More and more my views are expanding as i am willing to expose myself to these realities in myself and others. If we choose to surround ourselves in the box of conditions and people who see only 'this' reality, we will will be conditioned and influenced by their thoughts and behavior. We must find the people and conditions that reflect our growing awareness and not subject ourselves to the ignorance of others. Consider our friends and family and the activities we choose for your environment and then consider our Mental landscape. We need not go any further to find the level of understanding we have of spirit. As Paramahansa Yogananda has said; "envoronment is stronger than will power" So when we get depressed or find ourselves full of doubt and a lack of faith and understanding. Look no further than your environment both internally and externally. We ourselves have chosen it; If we wnat to have spiritual approach we must change those conditions which bind us to a worldly view.

spiritual awareness, to me- is a knowing

heart. love. every being has heart(spirit)... i believe, it's a matter of opening ourselves up to one another and having the eyes to see. the ears to hear... be brave and place trust in your brother

Hello Flying Squirrel

Beautiful thread indeed!  It would be nice to have you come and visit us.

In the light of awareness our thoughts cannot grow into actions. When we stand aside we have the awareness of a witness. Our actions become our habits. Our habits become our nature. We can break these habits by awareness.
